 Stars are born out of light, not darkness.

Stars are born out of light, not darkness.
Obscurities-river flows without behest
We must all navigate the fathomless
The starless universe within us lest-

We forget where we did begin to shine
Lest we forget the oceans broken shells
Think this earth is just dirt and brine
Remember a star always inside you dwells.

It embraces a fire never quelled, quenched
Takes light-years to warm your bones
Remember you have an ardour entrenched
Its pitted gold is red hot in undertones.

Love, you’re my one northern star tonight
Love, you’re my one loving, guiding light.
Stars are born out of light, not darkness
Born of fire; not a dwindling catharsis.

A living flame that never expires or dies
Stars are born out of eternal existing fuels
Stars are a metaphor, my love, analyse
Their warmth and brightness aren’t delusions.

The heat you’ve come to know in their coals
Doesn’t glow differently day or night
It’s not just where your soul mine juxtapose
Circling to one day collide, explode like dynamite.

Stars are born out of light, not darkness
Born of fire; not a dwindling catharsis
A living flame that never expires or dies
Stars are a metaphor, my love, analyse my eyes.
